Sharkoon Rebel 22

Hi!

I have a quick question: I just built my first unRAID server based on the same case as yours, the Rebel 12. I have, just like you, placed six drives in the bottom cage as my 4in3 cages haven't arrived yet. The problem is that I get disk temperatures of around 42C when I am writing to a disk. Do you have the same issues?

 

Did you put the 2x 80mm fans in the side per the first post in this thread?

oops. No I didn't. Guess I'll have to order some  :P

 

Do you reckon 42 Degrees is too hot while under stress ( not idle)? I like how the unRAID is so extremley quiet at the moment without any HD fans.

 

EDIT: Just ordere'd 2x Noctua NF-R8-1800. Apparently they are very quiet.

The only way to hear a Noctua is to put your ear right next to one - careful not to cut yourself  ;D  I had Noctuas but swapped them out only because they didn't offer any sort of computer-based speed control (but you'll still be able to monitor their speed).  They do come with a couple of groovy adapters which let you manual change their speed.  I'd run them at their slowest setting first (ie the quietest) and see how that affects your disk temps.

That sort of 'quiet' is exactly what I'm looking for. I've heard of ther LN/ULN adapters, but am thinking of hooking them up to a fan controller. I have a couple lying around so I might as well use them!

I speed control my 120mm fans (front and rear) = Church Mouse -> Wind Tunnel

 

I leave them at low (very quiet) in normal use, and switch them to full during parity checks.

 

The 80mm fans on the side are so quiet (I deliberately chose quiet ones) that they are fine running at full speed all the time.

Thanks for your replies!

 

I tried attaching a 120mm fan to the rear of the case, but the holes wouldn't lign up, so I figured it had to be a 140mm fan.

How about vibration from the hard drives? Do the Scythe stabilizers do their work properly?

 

The case seems really flimsy, so every vibration from the hard drives will likely result in resonance.

Like any structure, it looks flimsy if you pull it apart, as I did. So does a building...  ;D

 

The structural stability comes from the....structure! No, no vibration. The thing is rock solid. Bolt 4 hard drives to the steel Scythe stabilisers, bolt the steel to the steel chassis with huge rubber grommets in between = solid and no vibration.

 

You can see the structure of the Scythe 4-in-3s better in this post: http://lime-technology.com/forum/index.php?topic=2031.msg34915#msg34915

Thanks! It pains me to replace my Lian Li PC-A17 case with this one, but dammit! I have storage needs too...  ;D

I have really loved this case and I remember someone was turn off by the fact that the side fan was blowing in. Well, it can be modified very easily.  ;)

When you turn the fan around, the screws that were connected to theses grey "poles" can now be screwed straight to the side panel of the case.

I may of missed it but what is the energy usage of this beast?

 

The case? Nothing.  ;D

Haha, the whole setup?

I dunno. 100W? It all depends on the mobo, CPU, number of hard drives etc.

 

The large Sharkoon-based server I built only gets switched on a couple of times a month when I archive movies from my smaller server, so I don't really care about the power consumption too much.

Is this at idle? Could I be a pain in the rear and ask if you you would mind testing that for me please :)

Power consumption figures are in the first post, but if you were to build a similar system today, you'd probably use different, lower-power components.
